Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge theme is LOVE. Now…I’m not quite ready for Valentine’s Day, but thought this Stampin’ Up! set, Wandering Words, would fit the theme very well! This also fits my Design Team Challenge for Late Night Stampers to "bling it up!" I cased the layout on page 71, but added another layer, texturized the background, pierced the scalllops and added Square Rhinestone brads!
I started by using my Stampin’ Write Markers to ink up the Wandering Words image with Close to Cocoa and Melon Mambo and stamped on Whisper White cardstock. I layered it on Close to Cocoa cardstock, the added the two Fire Square Rhinestone Brads. I took a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder to add some texture. I layered on a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock, pierced the edge with my Paper Piercing Tool and then wrapped Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon around to the back and adhered. I used a cheater bow in the front. I punched a small strip of Melon Mambo cardstock with my Scallop Edge Punch, then pierced holes in each of the scallops. The stamped image element was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and everything placed on the Melon Mambo base card.
Don’t forget it is Preview Week over at Create with Connie and Julie! Julie has a cute tutorial today using the long tag from the Table Settings Bigz XL die!
Have a GREAT weekend!
